QUALITY PROFESSIONAL TELEHEALTH SERVICES IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME
At Telehealth Services Australia we believe that professional health services & care should be accessible and convenient.
Not everyone can attend a health provider's office or clinic. Nor is it always possible or appropriate for a health provider to visit your house. Telehealth - or the provision of healthcare using modern communication tools - solves both of these problems.
Telehealth Services Australia is an easy one-stop listing of all allied healthcare businesses who provide telehealth services. These may be local to your area, or they may be based elsewhere in Australia.
What is Telehealth?
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), “Telehealth involves the use of telecommunications and virtual technology to deliver health care outside of traditional healthcare facilities”. A common example of the use of telehealth in day to day life is video conferencing.
Another example includes Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM). Remote patient monitoring involves the reporting, collection, transmission and evaluation of patient health data through electronic devices such as wearables, mobile devices, smartphone apps, and internet enabled computers.
Telehealth requires a strong, reliable broadband connection. Due to the improvements of broadband infrastructure, we are now seeing telehealth being used more widely as it is now more feasible.

How can Telehealth help?
Health consumers in remote, regional and outer metropolitan/country areas are faced with barriers to accessing specialist services such as allied services when compared to those living in city areas. This is because rural and remote communities are quite small and do not have the necessary population to support all allied health services. Here, telehealth can assist health consumers to overcome these barriers through enabling and providing them with access to specialist services sooner with lower travel costs and better continuity of care.
Even in metropolitan areas, people in need of healthcare may not be able to attend a provider's clinic, or even have a practitioner visit their home. For example, those undergoing isolation or quarantine. In these circumstances, these people can still have ready access to the healthcare they need through Telehealth.
